How serious is the Hewitt/Hoon move?

January 6th, 2010

News is just breaking that the former chief whip, Geoff Hoon along with the former cabinet minister, Patricia Hewitt, have sent a message to all Labour MPs calling for a secret ballot to resolve the leadership issue once and for all.

The fact that Hoon is a former chief whip gives this an added credence.

Is there real momentum behind this?
